Batik

Batik is a wool and acrylic yarn with a lovely round twist to it. The colour effect is a painted semi-solid look that gives beautifully subtle tonal hues when knitted up. The original palette was influenced by the rich and opulent colours of Morocco but the range has expanded to include more subtle shades too.
